Simply Saturdays with Gay

Final day for our paper tape week. We hope you enjoyed it and found a lot of inspiration this week thanks to our DT's samples.
Today Gay has not only made beautiful samples for you but she is also showing you the "rejects". If you have never tried Clean and  Simple before, you might think that it's quick and easy. Well.. not really. And sometimes it does not go quite according to plan.

Gay used a different tape to the ones you have seen this week. This one is much wider, and glossy, nonetheless beautiful. You will find it under "design tape" in the embellishment section 

 I usually start with lots of ideas and whittle them down to the bare bones then build the idea back up but there are a lot of rejects along the way. So I thought I would show you today the different ways I approached my card

 The Rico tape is really glossy which is lovely but needed consideration in the design of this card, if I had stamped onto them they would have needed a permanent ink. 

  The stamps are so quirky and offer lots of possibilities, this time its a love card and a bookmark to match. 

 What's nice about the washi tape here is that it will put up with lots of handling and wipe clean. Simply cut out of magnetic self adhesive sheet and adhered to card with washi tape over it

  1. That bookmark is such a great idea with the magnetic sheet! Love the stamps too.

  2. Oh you are a clever girlie, that bookmark is such a great idea. That fancy tape is lovely, your card is beautiful. xx
